St John, Antigua and Barbuda, October 18, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Since last spring, Intertops Poker (http://poker.intertops.eu) and Juicy Stakes Poker (http://www.juicystakes.eu) have been hosting online satellite tournaments for the $500K CPT Punta Cana. Five online tournament champions have won their way to the Caribbean.
The Team is: 32 year old Austrian poker pro, Daniel Montagnolli; Neil Slade, a builder and recreational poker player from Hampshire UK; Derek Scallon, a Chicago poker pro and film producer, Steven Loney, a businessman who plays poker for fun, and Phil Cardella, a Pittsburgh CAD designer and purely recreational player.
Daniel recently quit his job to become a full-time poker player beginning September 1. He was in the Caribbean last fall, too, when he came third in the CPT/WPT in St Maarten and won $1600. His biggest win to date was the No Limit Hold’em Championship Event at the 2007 Legends of Poker in Los Angeles where he came 25th and won $25,150. Montagnolli is listed on the Hendon Mob’s United States All Time Money List. He’s been active at PokerStrategy.com where he’s known as Monze.
Neal, a 44 year old builder and father of two from Hampshire, UK, plays online poker a couple of times a week trying to satellite into live events. He’s won seats at WSOP events, WPT, UKIPT and GPS this way. His goal is to play an EPT tournament. This will be his second live poker tournament in Dominican Republic -- he won a seat at the CPT Punta Cana two years ago and came in 6th, winning $9000.
Derek Scallon, a professional poker player from Chicago, produced a documentary on online poker called Bet Raise Fold in 2013. He placed 122nd in the $10K No Limit Texas Hold’em World Championship at the 2006 WSOP 2006 and won $ 51,129.
Steven Loney, a toy business entrepreneur, just plays poker for fun but will be seated at the Main Event in Punta Cana with the rest of the Team thanks to some lucky cards and some smart moves at the online satellite he won in May.
Phil Cardella, a computer draftsperson by day, said he was more lucky than smart when he won the final online satellite tournament of the series.
The five players will be sharing their experience in the Dominican Republic on the Living the Dream poker player blog (http://live-dream-poker.com)
